Roseanne Tackles Cancel Culture, Gender Insanity, in New Comedy Special

Roseanne Barr is back with a comedy special. She doesn’t mince words. She takes aim at cancel culture in a clip that’s been shared on social media. This is an issue she’s personally familiar with.

Barr was accused of racism after a 2018 tweet she sent about Valerie Jarrett (former White House advisor), prompting ABC’s cancellation of Roseanne. Many believe that ABC wanted to fire Barr because of her Trump-supporting title character. The Roseanne reboot was made without Barr after she was fired by ABC.

“What is my gender, mom? What is my gender? Your gender is, get a job. What’s your gender,” she is seen quipping in a clip from the special called Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!, her first stand-up comedy special in almost 20 years.

“What are they thinking?” “Ask a woman — what’s a woman?” she says. They don’t know this? They’re always asking about that one. What’s a woman? Let me tell you about a woman. A woman is me. This is what a woman looks like, okay? A woman is someone who takes care of everyone else’s needs. This is what a woman does.

Then there’s Barr declaring, “My pronouns were, kiss my stomach.”

Roseanne Barr: Cancel this! Fox Nation premieres the episode on February 13, 2013.
